I am using dnsmasq sitting in front of a win2003 server and it works 
fine for us, make sure you DO NOT use "filterwin2k".  Some other entries 
in my config file:


# Send microsoft-specific option to tell windows to release the
# DHCP lease when it shuts down.
# Code 02, Len 04, Data 00 00 00 01

# Samba recommended
dhcp-option=option:ip-forward-enable,0	# option ip-forwarding off

# Send microsoft-specific option to Disable netbios over tcp
# (use direct hosting)
# Code 01, Len 04, Data 00 00 00 02
